Downloading Physical Objects (Kinda)

Remember those commercials that said “You Wouldn’t Download a Car…”? We all saw that and said “Well, if I could…”. It may not be that far off now. A Pirate Bay user has been offering computer files that work with 3D printers allowing you to download and “print” physical objects. These 3D printers are on the rise as of late and will undoubtedly become cheaper and more complex. Soon you may be able to hop on a torrent site and download your favorite childhood toys that your mom threw in the garbage when you went to college and make a physical copy for yourself. This is of course one of many speculated uses of this technology and it may be a long time before we get to that point, but I’m very interested to see where this goes!
